It is now clear that site performance have much more direct impact on our business (as appose to indirect impact resulted in user expereince) then ever before.

In this post i try to provide some architecture guide line on how to control and improve site latency under scale based on a discussion with a leading eCommerce site the Netherland.

That is an interesting move by Google, but not surprising. One of Google's motivators has always been speed and making the web faster.

I own some websites, but I do not think the new change will have a big impact on my sites. First of all, they're quite small and secondly, they do not compete for very competitive terms anyway.
